    Contrite is the city of the humans. It is set on a sprawling plain with a mountain backing it, the walls and keep made from the aduntant quartz. Some say it was craft by the elves as a gift for the first king. Others say angels built it. It is a scenic place, with at least three parks, streams running between the buildings, and trees growing at nearly every corner. However, it does have a darker side. Literally. In the shadow of the keep and the mountain, the sun never shines, harboring a rat's nest of theives and assassin guilds. On the east side of the city, it is connected with a mighty river, a small port receiving and sending ships from abroad.
